Hey Mathieu:

I do hope you come to NY next week! 
We have PERFECT autumn weather right now!
The best place to find out what's happening puppet-wise in NYC is here:

You could go to the Spaghetti Dinner and then hit up the late-night 
showing of Basil Twist's Arias with a Twist at HERE Arts Center! 
Plus La Mama theater is showing puppets from Japan - 
and Chicago's AMAZING Redmoon Theater will be playing their
Hunchback at the New Victory Theater in Times Square.
(That's kind of like an early Halloween party, eh?)

And my puppet company is thinking of hosting a pumpkin-carving
party at our studio - I'll let you know if it coincides with
your trip! Would love to grab a coffee either way...

As far as non-puppet things not to be missed:
- I love all of the city zoos. The central park one is small 
and lovely.
- the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is great. And Prospect Park (designed
by the same people who did Central), that zoo, the Brooklyn Art
Museum are all right there as well!
- I'm not sure of any specific puppet/mask-type exhibits...
- I love the Natural History Museum but it is huge and often
crowded and can be expensive...
- I'm sure I could come up with more off the beaten path stuff, but 
I can't think of much right this second.

I don't know what to say about housing. I know that there is 
a pretty good hostel in Brooklyn and I know of a few women's
housings, but that won't help you, eh?

- Gretchen

although the puppet slam is on the 18th, maybe Gretchen would be the
to ask re events?? Now if you were in Puerto Rico for these dates I
suggest a 10 puppeteer event called "Sobre la Mesa"...
